If they pull it off, they’re set for life. If not, their lives won’t matter much anyway. What was going to be a smooth, straight-forward heist becomes a fast-paced battle to the death.

From Eisner Award-winning writer/artist PAUL POPE (Batman: Year 100, THB, Heavy Liquid, 100%) and presented for the first time in color by JAMIE GRANT (All-Star Superman). ONE TRICK RIP-OFF/DEEP-CUTS is 288 pages of raw power, of which over 150 pages are comprised of new, rare, and never before seen stories created during POPE’s time traveling the world in the ë90s.
